Why have you redirected all the individual costume maker NPCS' pages to one page?
They are still individual NPC's, and although they serve the same purpose, I feel that they deserve their own separate article, and I disagree with your decision.
Every NPC, regardless of dialogue, purpose etc. should have its own article in my opinion, but since you are pretty-much in charge here I'm basically just letting you know what I think. The Black Leach 20:01, April 16, 2010 (UTC)
- Look at Rune Trader and Material Trader (just for 2 examples) for precedent that pre-dates me. All Rune Traders have exactly the same functionality, all Material Traders have exactly the same functionality, all Costume Makers have exactly the same functionality. There's no need to maintain separate articles for the individual NPCs when they're exactly identical. —Dr Ishmael 20:05, April 16, 2010 (UTC)
I'm just saying that they deserve their own pages. That is how the official wiki functions, and its makes much more sense than simply having a handful of merchants, traders, etc. who have their own pages (due to involvement in quests). Although there is no need. There is no "need" for any of this information to be collected here on the wiki. What if a user simply wants to know what that particular NPC looks like for example. Its all useless when you think about it... but in the sense of wiki and what it stands for, they should all have their own pages, (including merchants traders and their likenesses). A wiki should strive to have full and complete information about everything in context, when in fact deeming such articles as "unnecessary" is sending it in the opposite direction.

- How the official wiki functions matters very little here.
- I personally see little need for articles on every individual. They mostly say the same stuff over and over again, and this wiki isn't too good at keeping up to date due to a dwindling editing-user count in the first place. --- -- (contribs) (talk) 20:28, April 16, 2010 (UTC)
Whatever... If thats how the community here wants it... thats how its going to be. I guess I'll just use the official wiki if I actually want a more-complete collective of information. I've been finding myself having to load up the official, in place of this one, more and more lately anyway (due to a lack of complete, or all-together completely missing information).
